I am wanting to build a replica of Amelia Earhart's L-10 Electra. I have searched high and low for a kit to no avail...:(

Does anyone know where to find such a creature?

Yeah I've looked everywhere and cannot find a thing. It seems like at least 1 or 2 people somewhere would have done it...

If I could pull it off it would really be unique that's for sure!

Then again, I'd probably just lose it...:eek:

That might be the way to go but I have never built a stick built...

so doing one from scratch would be diving in the shallow end head first I do believe...:(

I think I may be up for the challenge though!:D

Well....I'm building one right now. It took me a while to find a 3 view planeform. The lucky thing was it was on a website of somebody who is restoring one. In the restoration section, he has pictures of different sections from inside, so you can see the fuse ribs at various places. If anyone is interested I'll post some pics and even do a build thread if people are really interested

38 Lightning, could you send to me or post the electra restoration website , I'm thinking of modelling the electra for Flight Simulator. Thanks.
